“Will Certainly Return” - It's difficult to know where to start with this review because we arrived at the Fairfax Arms having driven through beautiful Yorkshire countryside, towns and villages, bedecked with bunting and yellow bicycles to honour Le Grand Depart and were feeling quite euphoric at the outpouring of Yorkshire pride. We didn't know what to expect when we booked our stay but we were impressed immediately by the lovely setting in the small hamlet of Gilling and by the friendly welcome we received. Our room (8) was comfortable and inviting but, being over the bar, was slightly noisy until "lights out" but that was not a huge issue. The staff are all professional and friendly and make you feel welcome. We had an early start one morning and a continental breakfast was provided for us. I don't want to be too effusive in my praise or next time we visit there may be no room at the inn!!

“Spectacular Eating Experience At A Great Price" - Dinner for five on a Saturday night and couldn't fault any aspect (and boy do I usually try!). We skipped starters with an eye on the deserts and weren't disappointed in that score - my apple crumble sundae was an absolute delight. Main courses were perfectly cooked, portions were sizeable and five empty plates were a measure of the Fairfax Arms success. In addition to the food, the place is comfortable, cozy and relaxing. Staff were friendly and obliging. I rarely come away from a restaurant entirely pleased with every aspect of the experience but the Fairfax Arms is a memorable place. Hugely recommended”
